People are hearing about the various community options in the city of Ariel -
and they're coming.
As a participating city in the Community Aliyah Program, Ariel
offers new olim special benefits in terms of housing, education,
employment and community life. With our close proximity to the
country's primary employment centers, as well as diverse local
employment options, Ariel is certainly a convenient location. The
homes, new and old, are very affordable. Perhaps even more
attractive are the views over the Shomron and much of the country,
the parks and greenery around the city (Ariel is termed "The Healthy
City") and the refreshing climate.
Most importantly is life in Ariel. It is an open city which welcomes
olim with open arms. Olim are invited to join any one of a number of
communities in the city. The religious communities are the fastest
growing. The communities have been developed around a variety of
themes, including furthering Jewish Unity (achdut), religious
revival, and strengthening the Jewish presence in the capitol of the
Shomron. The newest community, currently searching for an American-
style Rabbi to stand at its head, is an anglo-enclave with a focus
on integration within Israeli society.
